One of the Gang!

Above: Faith and her new friends play some music! Below: Grandma Mary plays with Faith in Grand Rabbits- I used to play in this independently owned toy store when I was a kid!

This week is full of firsts! Today Faith went to her first class! We attended a Gymboree music class. Faith had a BLAST! She was so intrigued by the other babies. She had a huge smile on her face whenever another baby came her way. This was soooo good for Faith, good for grandma and me, and good for the other moms and their babies! My mom said it would make all of them appreciate how easy they have it after seeing us! Nevertheless it was a lot of fun. I think we are going to enroll Faith in the class. I wasn't even sad when I saw babies half her age far more advanced then she is...I think I am starting to get over that. I was just sooooo proud of Faith. She has come such along way. For her to be in a room outside of the house (or hospital)interacting and smiling was just such a blessing!!!!)

Today also marked Faith's first trip into Boulder. It was special to be in the town I was born and raised in with my daughter. :) Boulder is about 20 mins from where we live but we don't head that way very often anymore- but I guess we will now!!!

It is such a JOY to experience all of these special moments with our little girl!

Awe, she looks like such a big girl in class there with all the other kiddos ! It must have been so fun to have her in some of the places you remember from childhood.

The apartment we are currently living in looks into the backyard where I played growing up and once was the home of some of my childhood friends, lol. It is almost surreal to look at it with adult eyes holding your own child, knowing they now share a piece of your history - even if they won't remember it, lol.

Faith sure looks like she has been enjoying her outings !

This is great news! She looks so happy and involved! It is such a fantastic step for her to be doing fun things, and to see new people and God's creatures. You guys (Jen, Brian, and Mary) are Faith's wonderful and most loving caregivers to take these challenges on and expose her to everyday normal things. God is so good and Faith is just the most special little girl! AMAZING!!!
